At a glance
Founded in 1459, the medieval, walled city city of Jodhpur is a knockout and a must-visit on your India itinerary. RAAS, Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel, is a charming property which spectacularly combines history with modernity in its architecture, service and style.
Sited under the imposing Mehrangarh Fort, the view from most rooms and restaurants is incredible, especially when the fort is lit up at night. It’s a great location, near enough to walk to the markets and bazaars but far enough away to feel that you’re in a secluded pocket of the city.
Couples will love
The heated swimming pool and private poolside gazebos where you can escape the noise and energy of the city. Sunrise yoga will start your day off in the right direction and then take a brisk 20-minute walk to the Mehrangarh Fort – or we suggest getting a tuk-tuk!
The hotel has thirty-nine rooms and suites. Garden Rooms which combine historic charm with luxurious fittings and furnishings; Luxury Rooms with floor-to-ceiling doors that open onto a large balcony with a view of Mehrangarh Fort; Duplex Suites for families or couples travelling together and the most lavish, the Heritage Suites which combine the best of the old and the new. All have mod cons including internet connection, flat-screen TV, air-conditioning, mini-bars and divine bathrooms.
Best room for two for romance
You couldn’t get a more romantic spot in Jodhpur if you tried. The ambient romance of RAAS is all-encompassing, from the fort view (you won’t find a more spectacular view in India) to the candles placed around the restaurants, pathways and pool. The Heritage Suites offer a private terrace and courtyard to the front with a stunning panorama of Mehrangarh Fort, while the back of the suite faces the splendidly landscaped hotel gardens.
Dining and leisure
An international style breakfast is served in the all-day restaurant, Baradari. For pre-dinner drinks head to the rooftop bar with its incredible view of the fort before a romantic dinner at Darikhana, situated above the old stables. Each meal is prepared with hand-ground spices, specially sourced from a 200-year-old shop hidden in the lairs of Old Delhi and fresh, seasonal, organic herbs and vegetables picked from the chef’s garden. Divine!
Spa & wellness
A spa treatment is just what you need after a day doing battle at the bazaars, so head to the RAAS Ila Spa and bliss out for an hour or two. With an in-depth and wide-ranging menu of spa treatments, it’s hard to decide on a massage,wrap and scrub, manicure, pedicure or facial – but indulge you must!
